(4-2-04) You can take it with you: 13 tiny USB flash drives. A short review of the features of 13 flash drives. April 2, 2004. "There are gobs of products out there to help you send, store, and transport your data, but few can match the simplicity and sheer portability of a tiny USB flash drive. Like an old-school floppy disk retailored for the twenty-first century, USB flash drives offer the capacity of a modest hard drive, the portability of a cigarette lighter, and the plug-and-play simplicity of a modern peripheral. These portable devices go by a colorful assortment of names--keychain drives, memory sticks, iDucks, and so on--but they all work pretty much the same way. Plug one into a USB port on the back of your PC, and it'll show up like any other hard drive. Drag and drop your data onto it from your PC at work, pull out the drive, and plug it into your computer at home."
